You may not have known this, but CHRIS FARLEY was originally hired to provide the voice of “Shrek”. And he actually recorded a lot of his dialog before he died in 1997. But it wasn’t enough.
MIKE MYERS was brought in to replace him, the script was re-worked, and the rest is history.
Well, a clip of Farley’s dialog has hit the web. It’s a conversation between Shrek and Donkey, played by EDDIE MURPHY. And the video includes early sketches of the characters. You won’t recognize the dialog, since the script was changed when Myers came on board.
